Review: Jigsaw

What started out as a low budget, generic "torture porn" film has slowly morphed over the years into an endearingly goofy film franchise. If you've never seen a Saw film before, I'm sure its lasting success seems like a mystery fr...

Review: Assassin's Creed Origins

I've beaten every mainline Assassin's Creed to date. Crazy, I know. I used to be able to not have to add that goofy "mainline" qualifier in, but the series has become so bloated with mobile spinoffs that it's impossible to keep up...

Review: Gran Turismo Sport

Developer Polyphony Digital is a group of perfectionists. Its attention to detail has led to the creation of some of the most detailed car models on the market. The realism presented in the Gran Turismo series is unmatched on consoles and e...

Review: The Mummy Demastered

I haven't seen this year's reboot of The Mummy and barring a long international flight or a drunken impulse rental on Amazon, I never will. The original Brendan Fraser-led Mummy movies? Sure! You know I'm down. But I'm not at all invested i...

Review: Fire Emblem Warriors

It took other publishers a long while to get on Koei Tecmo's Warriors train. While their studio Omega Force was pumping out hit after hit, no one really dared to ask "hey, can we collaborate?" for a number of years. Now it's hard ...

Review: WWE 2K18

Fans of the WWE 2K series have come to expect incremental changes from year to year. But the overall hope is those changes are for the better. It's a series constantly experimenting with its formula, but oddly can't stray too far from what ...

Review: Life is Strange: Before the Storm: Brave New World

They call it burning bridges because fire brings about complete and unrelenting destruction. Fire doesn't discriminate. It ruthlessly eradicates everything in its path, bridges included. And, when it's all razed to the ground, there's ferti...

Review: The Evil Within 2

In one of The Evil Within 2's early chapters, Sebastian Castellanos stumbles onto a familiar scene. As he wanders through darkened corridors, chasing leads in desperate hope of recovering his missing daughter, the former detective enters a ...

Review: South Park: The Fractured but Whole

In one of this season's episodes of South Park, Randy Marsh remarks "You have to overdo it in today's society. You can't be nuanced and subtle anymore or else critics go 'Wow, what was the point of that?'" It's a slice of meta-observation a...

EA has shut down Visceral Games

Visceral Games is set to close its doors in the very near future. Electronic Arts has opted to close the studio that's most well-known for the Dead Space series and Battlefield Hardline. For the past few years, Visceral has been workin...

Review: Divinity: Original Sin 2

It feels weird to have a consistent stream of "CRPGs" today. I thought Pillars of Eternity was pretty great, though I never got around to finishing it or delving into its expansion. Tyranny was a wonderful surprise and is my go-to reco...

Review: Forza Motorsport 7

Forza Motorsport 7 gives off a great first impression. Professional drivers introduce you to the various disciplines of racing while you get to reenact the crowning moments of their career. The game gives you an allotment of “mods&rdq...

Review: Golf Story

My expectations were a bit skewed going into Golf Story. I heard "golf role-playing game" and painted a picture in my mind of a grand, sweeping, save-the-world story in which problems are resolved (for some reason) with clubs and balls rath...

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood (Patch 4.1)

Final Fantasy XIV has now entered its "catch-up state." Whereas 4.0 was all about catering to the hardcore side with a four-level raid tier and new item cap to work toward, 4.1, known as The Legend Returns, doesn't shake up the formula in a...

Review: Middle-earth: Shadow of War

The word Mordor is so intrinsically linked to my experience of the "Middle-earth" action series that I simply can't escape it from my mind. I've typed "Shadow of Mordor" so many times it hurts, despite the fact that the sequel is indeed cal...

Team Fortress 2: A modern classic

There are some games out there that are true classics. Titles you can dust off and have as much fun playing today as you did when they came out decades ago. One doesn’t need to look any further than last week’s release of the SN...

It's finally arrived. The first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi just premiered during Monday Night Football on ESPN.  This is the first look we've gotten at The Last Jedi since the teaser debuted back in April....

Review: Blade Runner 2049

Denis Villeneuve has done the impossible. He has pulled off a feat that most directors won't even take a stab at. He has delivered unto us something we haven't seen for years. With this act Villeneuve has firmly established himself as one o...

Review: Rick and Morty (Season 3)

Rick and Morty is a dense series. Not because of its content per se, but because of the discussions it brings to the table. It's a series constantly at odds with its predilection for toilet humor and the overbearing cynicism of its delivery...

Star Wars Battlefront II is a much-needed step up

I've spent a few hours with the Star Wars Battlefront II multiplayer beta, and, you know what? I wouldn't mind playing for a few more hours rolling around as a droid or going HAM as Darth Maul. Shallow as the last game often felt, I stuck w...

Review: Pokemon Gold

Pokémon for me personally was a defining piece of media growing up. I can still recall recess at school and seeing groups of kids huddled around Game Boy screens or playing the card game. I even remember the first episode of Pok&eacu...

Review: Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions

I missed out on Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga for the longest time. As a huge proponent of Mario RPG, I was saddened to hear that Nintendo and Squaresoft wouldn't be partnering up again, and that instead, we'd be getting a new subseries...

Coming home to video games

A few weeks ago, the 1.3 update for No Man's Sky inadvertently displaced several players who had painstakingly built an outpost for themselves among the stars. One of those players, who goes by the handle UniDestiny, spoke to Kotaku about s...

Review: A Hat in Time

A Hat in Time caught my eye the moment I saw the pitch. That was all the way back in 2013. In time (forgive me), it was pushed into the back of my mind. Every sighting of the protagonist brought a smile to my face, as I would recall "h...
